    Should we treat fly tippers in a similar way?

    Never argue with stupid people, they will only drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience

      Bloody well done the Spanish - yes we should. The scumbags that do this really get on my nerves - very, very common in Mid Sussex, see it all the time on the country lanes (around a town that has a very good tip - from the debris that I see, looks mostly like either random people having clear-outs, or cowboy builders not wanting to pay the charges at the tip). MSDC have a team that seem to spend all their time responding to fly-tipping incidents (there's one road nearby that gets at least one or two piles of crap a week). I reported one nob-end that was dumping stuff in another 'popular' spot for it (and gave him a few choice words as I went past)

      Should throw him off the cliff, closely followed by all the fat reps and chavs slinging their cans of Red Bull, Costa cups and McDonald's wrappers out of their car windows.

      Tough. Commit crime, get mate to video it, stick footage on social media. What could possibly go wrong?

      I was surprised so many were confident pre-game and Brighton did exactly what they’ve done to us for the past few games but they actually bothered scoring this time. Hopefully this is the end of two up top when one of those forward is Carroll. It’s really impressive what Brighton have done since Hughton. It must be nice believing in a system and sticking with it. Basically what we had and lost under Rafa despite how pundits described it

      With councils now starting to charge people to dump non-commercial waste, unfortunately this problem is only going to get worse.

      It won’t be a problem if councils fine people £41k for fly tipping. They will be able to afford to employ enforcers and appropriate sites to hopefully eradicate it.

      Anyone who drops a cigarette butt should get the same treatment too.

      Rabid anti-smokers should develop a sense of proportion.

      (Non-smokers are fine, and hopefully enjoying their new largely non-smoking environment. It's just the fanatical hardliners ("Please will you go and have your cigarette on the other side of the dual carriageway, past all those diesel lorries; we can't open our window on the tenth floor because of your cigarette. Diesel fumes? - no, we hadn't noticed............")
